I was thrilled to be asked to design and sew dresses for four cousins who were reprising their roles as flower girls. Last summer, they were flower girls for my Son/Daughter-in-Law's wedding....this year it's a cousin and it's been close to a year later. So, it was fun to see how they've grown.
The Bride was looking for a classic style. After sending her four different sketches, she landed on this one. An off-white satin with five layers of tulle over the skirt.
Even the waistline was kept simple, with a a classic piping. But, I had to add "a little party in the back" with an oversized candy box bow!
The bows are pre-tied to ensure a picture perfect bow. I attached them to the dress on one side and the other side attaches with velcro. Easy Peasy!
The two middle cousins are really close in age and size. The oldest is about 8 and the youngest is 18 months.
I added a hangtag with my label and their names (Josie, Olive, McKenzie and Hazel) to personalize their dresses.
I also made them matching baskets from the same satin as their dresses. With large bows at each handle. Again, simple and classic.
My son sent me a cell phone pic so I could see them in their dresses. They looked so cute, and better still....they all fit great!
When I get the professional pics, I'll be uploading them to my website.
Congratulations Kaila & Billy!
